I found the remnants of mine down by the pick-up, behind the cover on the end of the crank. I think they broke loose when I was taking the cover off, I hadn't even noticed it until later...
From there to the pan is a short trip. If you drain the pan it may carry pieces in there out with it. The oil sump has a screen on in the inlet....it won't go past there. If it were mine, I might not even drop the pan depending on how much is MIA....find what I could and move on.
whitey (whitehendrix) has probably seen the most of of this...perhaps he'll chim in.
